The organizers of the international conference on “Exploring the Portuguese Diaspora in InterDISCIPLINARY and Comparative Perspectives” have issued a call for papers.
The deadline for receiving abstracts (500 words) for a 20-minute presentation, panel proposals and a concise Diaspora in InterDISCIPLINARY and Comparative Perspectives: An International Conference bio is February 28, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be sent out on March 25, 2013.
The event will take place in association with the InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPD) and will be held from July 25-27, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
All forms of the diaspora (socio-economic, political, literary, linguistic, historical, cultural, and others) will be considered. Work on comparative diasporas is welcome. Abstract submissions should be receptive to a range of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives that address the study of the Portuguese diaspora.
The conference is the result of a collaborative effort by Irene Maria F. Blayer (Brock University, Canada), Teresa Cid (University of Lisbon) Francisco Cota Fagundes (UMass Amherst, USA), and Dulce Maria Scott (Anderson University, USA).
The event proposes to create a forum that will permit scholars to engage in a cross-national and cross-disciplinary dialogue that will generate valuable comparative frameworks and data.
Exploring the Portuguese Diaspora in InterDISCIPLINARY and Comparative Perspectives: An International Conference brings together the synergetic efforts of colleagues from universities in the United States, Canada and Portugal. In collaboration with this conference, Neither Here nor There, Yet Both: International Conference on the Luso-American Experience will take place at the University of Lisbon (July 11-13, 2013).
